Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #60 Generational Stamping
What a beautiful technique Ashley Cannon-Newell shows us this week on Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday! Especially nice for this time of year. By using the same color ink and stamping twice before you "re-ink", you can not only double your colors, the method creates a wonderful watercolor effect...just like the springtime world outside right now.
By using just two colors...Color Box-Fireberry and Memento-Bamboo Leaves, I was able to make all these beautiful shades of color creating a "Monet" like feel.
Here's a closer look.
I even decided to "generational stamp" the flower layers, creating a darker and lighter red. Ashley even shows how to stamp first on "scrap paper" to get a lighter color for your stamp.(if the lighter color is all you want)
To see and try this lovely technique for yourself, go to:
Wishing you all a wonderful and joyful Easter!
